What’s it like to run and navigate at the same time? The OMM Lite event at the OMM Festival weekend at Cannock Chase gives you a chance to find out in a family-friendly atmosphere with a basecamp at the centre of the forest. You can also give it a go by bike. Scroll down for the film of what last year’s event was like.


The OMM Lite or Bike makes great practice for more remote, harder navigation or Mountain Marathon style events like the main OMM in October where you carry your tent, food and clothing with you for two days navigating in the mountains.


Don’t fancy the nav? Try a trail race, with the Outdoors Magic marked trail running courses over 10k, half marathon and marathon. Plus there’s a kids’ race – something for everyone!


There’s a huge heated and lit marquee with bar & food served all weekend – Enter an event on both days and get FREE camping (friends & family welcome) – Kids fun race – Kit shop and running advice – Talk to the experts – Family friendly – Post race food – Marked biking, walking and running routes on the doorstep.
